Dear Granny Wendy,
What are you doing to me??? I’ve only just finished grid filling and now you spring this on me??
I’ve been playing lots of fling games for fun and you make me go back and play another team I won’t like!

"Middenheim Maulers

While we’ve seen Chaos Renegades and Underworld Denizens in previous editions of Blood Bowl, this cracking new team of the ‘good guys’ comprises Human, Dwarf, and Halfling players. This mix makes for a very well-rounded team (and we’re not just talking about the little fellers’ ample bellies) that hits hard and can handle just about anything. Alongside the players, you’ll get team accessories and balls from the Human and Dwarf frames in the kit."

looks like 13 guys:

2 dwarf linemen
dwarf blitzer
dwarf runner
troll slayer
2 halflings
3 human linemen
human blitzer
human thrower
human catcher

If there is no Ogre I don't see a reason to use Halflings on that team.

My league always had this! (other 'good races' on a human team) They stole my idea! I wonder if I can get a free boxed set if I threaten to fling poo.

It will be such a shame if they fall short, and don't have an ogre positional to throw the halfling(s).

But a bit of AV9/Thick Skull on a human team could do wonders. If only they could be allowed an old-school 'blocker' positional, with 0-2 human models with ST4 and S access. (MA5 ST4 AG3 AV8, General+Strength Access, 100k)

0-2 Blockers
0-2 Blitzers
0-16 Lineman
0-2 Catchers
0-2 Throwers
0-1 Ogre
0-4 Dwarf Lineman
0-4 Halflings

Epic. All that would be missing, perhaps..

0-1 Pro Elf Lineman

By the looks of it, it could be a firm tier 2 maybe tier 1 team (especially if it did get an Ogre). I think it's fantastic after so many years that GW are adding some new teams and players. So i'm all for it.

The guy with the big crest is a human blitzer, not a lino

Sure, but the models are ready for this one. It costs nothing to roll out and generates interest and revenue. It is a good move.

Yeah it's a great move imo. Also hopefully means we could get 2 releases in fairly quick succession. Since this doesn't have a physical new team box.
I'm hoping this release will see all the blood bowl range come back in stock.
